Poloniex makes EOS and ATOM available for margin trading for non-US customers, lowers crypto lending minimum
EOS and ATOM are now available for margin trading for non-U.S. customers—at 2.5 times leverage—with Bitcoin (BTC) as the base pair. In addition, we’ve lowered the lending minimums to as low as $0.62 for some assets.
EOS and ATOM joins other tokens already available for margin (all with BTC as the base pair): XRP, ETH, BCHABC, BCHSV, ETC, XMR, STR, FCT, LTC, BTS, DOGE, DASH, MAID, and CLAM.
EOS and ATOM won’t be the last, either, because we are working on adding other tokens and base pairs for margin. We are expanding the tokens available for margin as part of our effort to make Poloniex one of the most innovative exchanges in the world.
Like the other assets available for margin, EOS and ATOM are also now available for lending. That means customers holding EOS or ATOM can lend it to other customers and earn interest (set by the market). Go here to see the new, lower lending minimums.
This builds upon other steps we’ve taken in recent weeks, including:
• We were the only exchange to allow Cosmos ICO participants to preview and claim their Atoms’ balance
• We completed a major systems upgrade that has enhanced performance across wallet functionality, trade execution speeds and overall latency
• We reduced trading fees and streamlined the fee structure to make our fees among the lowest of U.S. exchanges
• We were one of the earliest exchanges to list Grin
